We set out today on Gun Flint Lake and paddled for two-three hours before getting out of the canoe to the next lake.

The wind over the water created some choppy waves, but not enough to slow us down. To carry the canoe overland one must delicately lift the canoe and avoid falling.

The pines stood sentinel over the lakes as we paddled. Now the wind whispers through the pines as I write this in camp.
